WHAT CAN I PLAY?
Have you learned the music basics only to find a shortage of approachable and inspiring pieces to play? As a piano teacher of over thirty years, I have found that, once beginner students have completed a few months of learning the basics of notes and rhythm, there are a limited number of options regarding progression. Either the student carries on with more advanced primer courses which can be lacking in inspiration or they make the jump to ‘real’ pieces which may prove over-challenging and not provide any structure for advancing. This course aims to bridge the gap between primer level and ‘real’ music.
ABOUT THE COURSE
The course is split into ten sections, each focusing on one piece of music. The pieces are specially arranged by me and graded in order of difficulty to provide a solid progression path in which concepts are visited and revisited to build not just your repertoire but your musical skills and knowledge.
Each section starts with an overview and a playthrough of the piece so you always know what you are working towards. Then there are ‘mechanics’ lectures which teach you how to best learn the notes and rhythms using techniques and shortcuts that I have gathered and developed over years of teaching. Finally you learn how to interpret the music emotionally and in context to make a confident, assured and convincing performance.
GIVE A MAN A FISH
By the end of the course you won’t just be able to play ten new pieces. You will have the skills and toolset to apply what you have learned to new music and to make further progress on your own. You won’t just be taught to play by rote but will be encouraged to make artistic and technical decisions yourself. Skills you will use for the rest of your piano career.
REAL PIANO LESSONS
This is a deep dive into piano playing that will have you playing arrangements of the music of some of the greatest composers who ever lived such as Mozart, Beethoven and Bach and will give you pleasure for years to come.
All in all my piano method is the next best thing to having one-to-one piano lessons, but at a fraction of the cost and with the ability to schedule your learning to times that suit you.
Don’t put it off any longer, there’s no time like the present and with a 30-day money back guarantee there’s no risk. Start your wonderful journey into the world of the great composers today.
